“If this ain’t love” by Haenrik
Danish indie singer/songwriter Haenrik delivers a masterful and haunting blend of melodies and lyrics with his track “If this ain’t love”. The talented artist paints a picture for us to see clearly as the story of a love that never really got there but served the fantasy of it unfolds. It lets the listener into a world that may seem familiar for some or unexplored territory for others, but human nonetheless. It is a bittersweet tragedy that seemed like a love story in the eyes of the voice behind the verses, but in the a fantasy will not be the real deal. It is hypnotizing outcome as we know each word leads to a doomed, but still we keep on staring because the lie can at times feel so sweet and hurt as much as the real deal when the finale arrives. Listen, be in awe and enjoy!
Fun Fact: The track was featured in the season 8 finale of Shameless (US).
